The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!




Christmas, Dogs, Mistletoe.


Which One Doesn't Go With The Others?


Each holiday season children and dogs end up in the emergency room from having eaten those cute little white balls on mistletoe. They are very toxic. Mistletoe dries out, especially in our very dry climate, and the balls fall off the branches. Please consider using artificial ones.


All kinds of yummy treats abound this time of year. Cookies, and candy, cheese and salty, spicy snacks all smell good to our four legged friends but can cause lots of stomach distress. Be sure that all your family members know that slipping Fido people treats could cause him to get very sick.



Everyone at Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue, Ltd. wishes you and yours a Safe, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.


Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue will hold a Meet N' Greet at the 12 Strays of Christmas Pet Adoption Event, December 6. We hope to see you there.

The weather had turn cold and there was even talk of snow. Even the men in the city lumberyard were wearing jackets. I was hiding under a piece of plywood to get out of the wind but it kept blowing and making bump, bump sounds as I tried to rest. I just wanted to sleep so I could dream about a soft, warm bed and a full tummy. I don't remember how I ended up here feeling very hungry yet very heavy and tired. Something kept moving around in my stomach area and it felt like little kicks. Last week a couple of guys in uniforms chased me around for a little while. It really frightened me but they left as quickly as they came. Then something really strange happened.


This couple put down a big metal box with food in it. So I crawled in because I was so hungry and the door slammed shut. I was stuck! They came back and took me to their house. It was warm and they fed me more food. Next thing I knew I was taken to another place and put in a machine that said, "X-Ray" and someone said I had 6 puppies inside me. How did that happen?




I stayed a couple of days with a foster mom but she had to rush me to the clinic where a vet said I couldn't deliver the babies by myself. She performed a C-Section and when I woke up I had 6 fuzzy little mice next to me. At first I was afraid of them so ECR had to feed and care for them but pretty quickly I decided they were kind of cute and now I am taking very good care of them. Oh boy, Santa Claus sure came early this year. I guess he special delivers the biggest surprises first.
